NIF focuses on convening public forums for the consideration of public policy issues. The forums provide an opportunity for citizens of diverse views to join together to deliberate and dialogue in a reasoned, nonpartisan manner. This allows people to get past heated debate and instead, consider the issue from multiple angles and find common ground for action. Whether you are interested in convening public forums and helping citizens discuss difficult issues; learn a new skill set or enhance existing facilitation skills, or interests in incorporating public deliberation into your work group, club, committee or community - join us for this unique, interesting training.

Despite this isolation, Japanese mathematics, called Wasan, flourished and a unique approach to present mathematical problems was developed. Painted wooden tablets called sangaku were hung on display at Shinto Shrines and Buddhist temples. Over 900 tablets have been discovered with problems developed from priests, samurai, farmers, and children. The vast majority of these problems were solved using analytic geometry and algebraic means and the collection as a whole is frequently referred to as Japanese Temple Geometry. Mr. Fukagawa has brought several examples of sangaku tablets which will be available for viewing.
